I have found out today I will need a c-section for this birth. After having all vaginal births previously I’m so lost on what to expect. I will be booking an appointment with my GP to ask her all my questions but I won’t get in until next week.
I would like to know others experiences and what is something that you wished you were told? I want to be prepared
Have an answer?
I spent around 5 days in hospital.
You can't walk for a good few hours, so ask for help from the nurses.
Wear big undies, like granny undies.
Once you are able to feel your legs, I found it easier to get up as much as possible and walk around to aid recovery.
One thing that stuck in my mind with my first, was just after the baby was born, I got a little cuddle and then they took him away whilst I was stitched up. My husband spent more time with him and it upset me alot. With my other 2 babies, hubby was very clear to explain this to the Drs so I got much more time with baby just after they were born.
You need to take it easy on your self. Don't rush things.
All the best.
The day after your surgery it's is so painful and they tell you to get up and have a shower it's very uncomfortable to walk. But you need to remember the pain will go away and you are a strong woman and you will get through it.
Don't lift anything heavy then your baby for 6 weeks and don't hang washing out. Sleeping when bub is asleep too helps.
I wish you all the best.
Proof again that a kind heart is worth more than anything!!
I wish we were friends 😊
